ご質問ありがとうございます。

その国が魅力的な理由のひとつとして
One of the reasons which makes this country a wonderful place to visit is....
と、したうえで上記の文章をくっつけるといいかもしれません。

時差は、time differenceとなります。
それを、not muchと表現したり、bigとすることもできますね。
時差は、だいたい1日1時間かけて慣れると言われています。

Enjoy your trip!

  • There is only __ hours between us.

"There is only _(number)_ hours between us." This is a short and to the point way to say the exact amount of time between the two countries. You can also change the word 'us' to the name of the two countries.
"There is only _(数字)_ hours between us."

これで二つの国の時差がどのくらいなのかを明確に表すことができます。
「us」を「 (二つの) 国の名前」に変えることもできます。

  • There's a slight time difference between the two countries

  • There's only a minimal time difference between the two countries

Slight/minimal = very little
Of course, you could always mention the exact time difference if you know it as that would be more informative. What is slight or minimal to one person may seem like a drastic change to another.
"The time difference is only plus 2 hours - you'll adjust very easily."
Slight「わずかな」/minimal「最小限の」 = very little「ほんの少し」

もちろん、もし時間差をちゃんと知っているのであれば、そのほうが情報として有益なのでそれを伝えればいいです。
What is slight or minimal to one person may seem like a drastic change to another.
ある人にとって「わずかな」または「最小限の」という感覚は、他の人にはかなり違うように思えるかもしれません。

"The time difference is only plus 2 hours - you'll adjust very easily."
「時差はこっちよりたった2時間先だよ。めっちゃ簡単に合わせられるよ」

  • The time difference isn't very much

To say that something "isn't very much" is to say that it is small or little in size. For example:
"That isn't very much to eat"
"We didn't have very much money"
「___ isn't very much」は「(___が) 小さい、少ない」ことを表します。
例:
"That isn't very much to eat" (〈食べ物が〉それはちょっと少ないね)
"We didn't have very much money" (お金があんまりなかった)

"There is a little time difference." can be used to state that the timezone difference is small.
タイムゾーンの違い(時差)が殆どない場合、”There is a little time difference"(時差は殆どない)と表現できます。

  • The time difference is not very big

If you are trying to say there is not a big time difference then you would say
'There not much time difference', 'the time difference is not alot' or ' the time difference is not very big' these all mean the same thing and are all good ways to express this
時差があまりないことは、以下のように表せます。
'There's not much time difference'(時差があまりない)
'The time difference is not a lot'(時差があまりない)
'The time difference is not very big'(時差があまりない)

これらは全て同じ意味で、時差がないことをうまく言い表しています。

Instead of saying the time difference is small, you could say the number of hours it is which would be more useful to your listener. For example, 'the time difference is one hour'. If you added 'just' or 'only' it would add emphasis to how small you thought that was. '....is only one hour'
'It's just a small time difference'
"small"の代わりに、具体的な時間を言うこともできます。相手にとってはその方が分かりやすいでしょう。例えば:
'the time difference is one hour'.
[訳]時差は1時間です

また、'just'や'only'を加えて少なさを強調することもできます:
'....is only one hour'
[訳]....はたった1時間
'It's just a small time difference'
[訳]時差は少ししかない
